    Bad Memory (perhaps and which?)

    I have a system that since the addition of more RAM (PC-100 ECC) has began to freeze up under load.

    Is there an efficient way to test where the problem could be rather than just swapping chips? I have not been able to find anything useful under various searches on google for "ram testing", "memory testing", etc.

    Ideally a program that was able to load different sectors sequentially perhaps.

    Much thanks,

    link for memory testing tools,


    Memtest86 seems be a great tool (takes a while to run tho but checks which ram is faulty and such, links you to they homepage on that site if u want to find out more about it etc,

    or maybe try MemTest,

    I agree with goozle, use memtest86

    Ignore any memory tester which runs under an operating system (except possibly plain DOS). A memory tester cannot work with an OS.
